Aloeswood is also known as jin-koh, agarwood, oud, and eaglewood. It presents a complex, visionary aroma like nothing else on earth. It is a resinous, richly-scented wood found inside the remains of an expired Aquilaria tree. Its wondrous scent is the result of a little-understood decomposition process.
Many compare their first experience with aloeswood/ agarwood formulations to noticing luminous new colours in a rainbow, or to hearing a beautiful chord in an exotic tune. It can provide a powerful moment of sensory fulfillment to be forever remembered.
